A la Une
A veritable festival of special effect, the new Sound and Light show at the Royal Chateau, literally brings French history to life.
As night falls, in an audio and visual setting as captivating as it is striking with its realism, Ainsi Blois vous est conté reveals the four wings and the genius of the great builders from the 13th to 17th centuries. Precise 3D modelling of the changing faces animate the architectural diversity, remixed music, spatialized voices, video mapping, special cinematographic processes, actual shots: the technology used for this original scenography have enable all Blois’ eccentricities to be shown for the first time.
Get ready for a refreshingly new experience amidst the green utopia of the Domain of Chaumont-sur-Loire with its 2020 Art Season! Like every year, fifteen or so new artists will be imbuing the Domaine’s château and grounds with the grace and subtlety of their creative worlds. Joël Andrianomearisoa, for example, will be beckoning us on a poetic meditation about night and day in a series of spaces in the Farmyard, with an altogether spell-binding installation. Two sculptures by Giuseppe Penone will be urging us to “breathe the shadow” and transcend appearances, while the artist’s sublime, newly exhibited drawings in the château will reveal his obsessive relationship with trees and branches.
